Everything he said is true III 12
Everything he said is true/Dummett: "true" here is not removable, so it is not a definition of truth - it is only eliminable in connection with a that sentence. ((s) The content must be specified.) - E.g. The plus sign, "+" can only be eliminated when before a number of characters, not before another term like a number or a variable - and that applies equally to "true".
